YOUNG MUSICIAN PREP ONLINE
Ages 4-6

 

Explore the Musical World Through Singing, Dancing, and Drumming!

This course is for children who have had exposure to music. Students will learn the building blocks of rhythmic and melodic notations (the introduction of reading music) and will learn to love music through folk songs, dance, rhythms, and music games. Students will learn how to really listen to, enjoy, and express their feelings through music. In this course, students will begin to develop their musical ear not only through singing but through the introduction of pitched percussion instruments, such as xylophones. This course is a prep course for the Young Musicians course. This section is a prep course for the Young Musicians course offered next Spring 2021.

 

 

Frequently Asked Questions
How are the classes structured?  

Structure is important now more than ever. Each class will be formatted in the same way to create structure and so students know what to expect. The class will include interactive exercises such as “sharing time,” to work on communication, social skills, and have kids interact with kids their own age.  There will be a Dropbox for any materials or song tracks that families may need for each class.

My child has a short attention span, what if they don’t stay still?  

There are many benefits of these classes being offered online: they are in your own home, they are flexible, and they are fast paced. These classes are developed in a way to work on skills such as attention span, memory, and communication.

Do the music classes require parents to have any musical skills?  

No, these classes are perfect for both parents and students that have little to no music experience! It is such a special experience to see parents learn along with their children.
